I’ve been going to NYU dental, seen several students and visits. Had several “normal” x-rays, not chewing on the side for two years, then finally having a root canal done in April 2015. I’m here wondering my next step. Last week Thursday, I went for the temporary crown, and still the tooth has sensitivity when biting the softest things. I don’t think a permanent crown will help. I shouldn’t feel this seven months after a root canal. Considering removal & implant if canal re-treatment is needed.
You should see the dentist or the Endodontist who worked on your tooth and go for post-op!
It is possible that the tooth is traumatized and you might need a bite adjustment, or possibly the infection from the nerve is not all removed or possibly the tooth is cracked.
If the crack is under the bone, then you need to extract tooth and place a tooth implant with a crown after.
If the crack is above the gum you can salvage your tooth and have a crown to be placed, after necessary build up and preparation of your tooth. For more information on crowns click here: https://www.celebritydentist.
See a root canal specialist, let him tell you if the tooth can be saved.
If it was my tooth, I would much rather to have my tooth saved rather than a dental implant !
